“A writer is nothing without his/her pen, ideas prisoners of his/her mind.  Alike, a pharmacist is nothing without the essential contribution of the pharmacy technical assistant.  Our colleagues are an essential part of our team being responsible for ordering, handling preparing and dispensing the medications.  They are also our eyes, ears and voice helping communicating important messages to our clients. 

On this International Pharmacy Technician Day, I want to thank them for all their hard work and dedication.  You are wonderful colleagues and I don’t know what we would do without you!” - Amélie Fortin, Chief Pharmacist
